Mutual game


The poles are side by side on an imaginary center line in the box max 4 per box
The side/or center/back line are the end marks. 
Per pole a declarer and a runner. The runner walks from line to line and shoots from the back one time and from the front the next. 
The runner runs 3 minutes each time.

  1. Easy pace as a warm up.
  2. Tempo goes up to 50%.
  3. Take through ball with short sprint and run out slowly to the other line.
  4. Halfway through the run-up two steps to the left or right and then run through again 50%
Although the emphasis is on fitness, make it a contest with your fellow runner to see who scores the most.

As a team, try to play 10 x across to each other in a small space: 10 by 10.

    After a goal we take a free ball and if it is seated also a penalty throw.
    Which team is the first to score 5x

  • The children stand in pairs. The idea is that the children each have a tire and 1 ball.
  • The children take turns bumping into the band, the other must take the ball before the ball falls to the ground next to the band.
  • If this does happen, then five push-ups or five sit-ups are done.


Play with 4 players around the post.

  • 1 player takes the catch.
  • Next player to pass the ball takes the pass.
  • Ball is passed to the handler, handler passes to the person from whom he/she received the ball.
  • Player takes a shot.
It is important to keep a high ball pace, to fill in quickly, to fill in the right persons and to throw in the right hand.
Play 4:4 with the trained drills alternating back and forth.

  • The team that scores takes a free throw after a goal.
  • If you score the free throw, you also take a penalty throw.
  • If you score everything, you continue.
  • After 3 interceptions, there is a change of positions.
